I am a Career Development Fellow in Economics at Mansfield College and a Stipendiary Lecturer in Economics at Trinity College. I previously taught economics at several other Oxford colleges (Lincoln College, St Edmund Hall, St Catherine’s College, Jesus College, and Merton College) and conducted research for the World Bank Group, the United Nations, the Bank of England, and Goldman Sachs.
I obtained the PhD in Economics and the MPhil in Economics from the University of Oxford, and I was a visiting research fellow at the University of Venice, the European University Institute, and Harvard University.
My research interests lie at the intersection of political economy and economic history, investigating the impact of policies on representation, enfranchisement, and social unrest.
